Best outdoor dining for when it’s nice out, not super expensive

Getting ready for spring and want to be outside as much as possible on those warm days. What are some good spots? I love Felipe’s roof and margaritas but live further south of Boston so it is a bit of a hike now. Lolitas is a bit pricey but good vibes.

    Bow Market: A Courtyard with Food, Art, Retail Shops, Brewery, Wine Bar, & Event Space | Union Square | Somerville

    It’s in Somerville so may be too far north for you but Bow Market has outdoor seating and has a number of food/drink vendors that aren’t too expensive

    Time Out Market Boston Food Hall

    This is a nice food court, you can grab food (plenty of options) and sit outside. They have lawn games in summer. Trillium Fenway is right next to it.
